Just a little post before I do my Fabriholics Anonymous post this evening. I did get a few things done over the long holiday. I had Tuesday through Friday off.
I started out with this stack of string blocks and added six more to make a lap size quilt. I got these string blocks in a swap a couple of years ago. I am determined to finish up all of my projects that had completed blocks.
It finished up like this. I gave it to a friend who will finish it up and give it to the Alzheimer wing at her Mom's assisted living. It has lots of nice seams to fiddle with.
I also had numerous blocks from my Block Swap Adventure. I had enough for the quilt top and enough to piece some into the back. I have finished the top but do not have a picture yet. It turned out to be twin-sized and will make a nice quilt for our guest bed. Below is my stack of blocks. I never changed my profile so all of these are in traditional fabric. I wanted to have enough to make a quilt.
I also have a picture of the Lucy Boston blocks I have so far. I have a long way to go to make a queen sized quilt.
I did get some additional goodies before I start my fabric diet. I got some more Denyse Schmidt fabric both FMF and Chicopee for my stash. I do so love her fabric. Also, Craftsy was having a wonderful fabric sale and I got a stack of Amy Butler Soul Blossoms for about $1.25 per FQ. I also scored on a stack of Kona FQ's. I got 40% off of the sale price on these since I bought a four yard cut of Kona Snow a few weeks back. I am finally going to get around to doing the 2012 Block of the Month quilt with Amy Gibson. Love all of her blocks in the sampler quilt. I got a spider web ruler from my Amazon gift cards. I am going to make a few spider web quilts with fabric from my ever growing scrap bins.
